Posted on 11/04/2012 7:57:40 AM PST by ThE_RiPpEr.
Our view: Re-elect President Obama
I notice that the graphic display of poll results is rigged to visually exaggerate Obama’s lead something like 210 to 182 when I FReeped the poll, but the bars are truncated at about 180 so Obama’s lead looks huge.
It will be interesting to see whether it switches to showing the whole poll result to scale once Romney takes the lead after a vigorous FReep of the poll, or whether that, too will be exaggerated in appearance.
Hilarious editorial, too!
Poll shows just over 182 for Romney, just under 210 for O. Chart is very miss-leading, makes it appear that only a few votes are for R and most are for O.
Done and Done
"People support a candidate for many reasons some of them quite personal. We want our country to be safe, we want it to be successful; we want our country to provide even better opportunities for our children and grandchildren."
And then they claim that nObama is the better candidate to do this? Geez, I thought I was reading the New York Crimes or the San Francisco Comical!
Really? I failed to see anything in his plan that attempts to make home ownership an entitlement and ignoring the problems this creates until the housing bubble bursts?
I could not find the place to vote - disgusted with the article tho.
Well, that about says it all for WS. Now that we’ve seen these poll results, we should hope Romney stops wasting money in WS for it most surely is a lost cause now. I mean if the La Crosse paper says it the whole state is done. NOT! Some of the posts to the article are delusional to say the least. Suppose it really doesn’t matter what anybody says, if you don’t vote for uncle obie, you’re a racist. Has nothing do with his lack of character or integrity. None what so ever. Wonder how folks would feel if it were someone like Clarence Thomas or Walter Williams or even Herman Cain? Of course they are just porch, uh, help. Yeah, that’s it. ABM and ABW gotta go.
Helping keep mankind warm for 65 years.
I wonder what the graph would look like with Romney in the lead?
The numbers aren’t even changing 190 Mitt, 213 Oblame-O.
The graph is deceptive. That being said, I will now go back and vote for the third time, The Chicago Way!
Bummer, less than 230
Rummney, over 410
I voted - but the thing won’t show me the results. Maybe it is overwhelmed by all the clicks for Romney.
Romney over 500 Obama 208
Romney killing it when I voted, it is truly becoming a TSUROMNEY everywhere
Go R/R go!
About 640 R and 220 O at this time - looks like readership doesn’t agree with them.
OMG how can they believe BHO can address the debt better???
Voted -— Romney 700 something & Obama 200 something.
Freeped. No contest.
I absolutely love the Gibson Les Paul Custom I bought from Dave's Guitar Shop in La Crosse, Wisconsin during my consumer's protest of the Fed's illegal acts against Gibson Guitar!
Dave's Guitar Shop took good care of me and, for what it's worth, the ebony fretboard is very nice.
Go look now. As of about 8:45 AM Romney almost 900, Obama about 250. They no longer are giving exact scores. Just bar graphs. I don't think the change is due to only to freeping. I rather doubt this thread has been viewed hundreds of times, or hundreds of us here have hit it (no offense to you-know-who for infringing on his copywrited proclivity).
O 256 at 11:00AM CST
R close 1K!!!
Good catch. I used to complain about that manipulation when our local schools/govt were doing their annual budget. They’d put the bar low to show dramatic need/increase when the picture taken in its totality was quite different.
I’m shocked that the poll is still up!
Now it appears to be about 1,000 for Romney to 275 for obama.
Romney has a substantial lead. Hate these polls that use those crazy bar graphs.
Obozo slightly under 300
Romney slightly under 1,200
Weird result (I hate graphs) but the results work for me!
Mitt- just under 1200 votes
0- just under 300 votes
We have only 40 or so posts this thread...and returning to the site, I could not see the poll. Had to refresh the first time around to see it...that didn't work a second time.
Wisconsin would be nice. I like cheese. Does anybody else like cheese?
Wow Romney is destroying Obama in this. Seems the newspaper is way way out of touch with it’s readership
It got FReeped good. Now just under 1300 for Romney and @ 300 for Obama. (not able to cut and paste the graph)
FREEP THIS POLL ***PING!*** FRmail me if you want to be added or removed from the Fearless Poll-Freeping Freepers Ping list. (multiple votes using multiple internetz devices are allowed!) And be sure to ping me to any polls that need Freepin', if I miss them. (looks like a medium volume list) (gordongekko909, founder of the pinglist, stays on the list until his ghost signs up for the list)
And, they reset the baseline to 0 so that the Romney lead is visually minimized! When Obama was ahead 210 to 182, they had the bars start at 180 so Romney’s was 2 units long and Obama’s was 30.
It looks a lot better NOW! :-)
Romney a little over 1500
Obama around 400
as of now
Who do you support MittRomney or Barack Obama?
Mitt Romney 1500
Barack Obama 400
I LOVE it!
